Things were not going very well for the Oregon Ducks on Saturday in the Las Vegas Bowl against the Boise State Broncos. OR has had multiple distractions leading up to this game which I believe will prevent the Ducks from performing at an above average level. Dhaenens bounced off a poor tackle attempt by Oregon's Arrion Springs and cut upfield for the score, completing a 12-play, 75-yard drive. Specifically, head coach Willie Taggart fled OR for the head coaching position at Florida State.
"We gotta treat everybody else the same and as far as i'm concerned their two other running backs are just as good". As for Cristobal's first game, there are a lot of questions surrounding the Ducks right now, but perhaps none bigger than the status of Royce Freeman. Herbert has four touchdown passes and one interception in his two games since returning from injury.
Freeman ran for 1,475 yards and 16 touchdowns this season and caps his OR career with a school-record 5,621 yards and 60 scores.
Just like that, we have ourselves a 24-14 game at the half. Cedrick Wilson and A.J. Richardson have combined for 1,784 receiving yards and eight touchdowns while Jake Roh has 39 receptions.
"It's been awhile", Boise State coach Bryan Harsin, who was the offensive coordinator for those games.
It is the second straight bowl in which Boise States bowl opponent will be without its top rusher, as Baylors Shock Linwood opted to skip last years Cactus Bowl.
